MICE in our 308RETS

Hello Gang,

We went and check on our 308RETS yesterday (on a seasonal site). First time since we closed her up in Mid October to find 3 of our 6 traps caught mice. Looks like they've been in the traps for a while. The area the traps caught them is on the sink counter and in the Pantry.

We have Moth Balls everywhere, plugged every hole (including the shore power) we could find with Steel Wool, but the only area the seem to be intruding is around the sink and Pantry. We cleaned everything spotless when we closed up, not a morsal of food. No apparent damage to any cushions. I'm thinking since it's been so cold we won't have any issues till it starts warming up.

Any thoughts as to where they could be coming in. The hot water tank is under the sink, so I can't see under it or behind it incase there's an area that they could be coming through there. I don't believe they are coming throught the slide outs or bathroom. They have to be coming in from under the sink area, just can't put our finger on where.

Any suggestions and as always thanks in advance for all the advice on our mice...

Check to see if there is any daylight showing in the corner of the slide. When my slide is in, I can see a bit of daylight in the lower right corner. I have also place bounce sheets throughout the trailer. i have not check it yet this winter. The mice don't nee much of a hole to get in. Also look aroung the wheel wells and stablizer jacks that would be the route to the underneath. Good luck

Moth balls, dryer sheets, scented bags of stuff "that mice don't like"........all this stuff doesn't work! Like you I have plugged every hole I can physically see with steel wool.
I will probably revert to traps as they will not crawl somewhere and die inside the RV somewhere. (Ask me how I know)
I had my rv dealership fill some holes with the foam insulation stuff that expands. Still getting mice. grrrrr
